Welcome to the Gildredge House Year 7 Virtual Transition
Due to the current climate, we are not able to run our usual transition programme. Therefore, we have been working hard at creating a virtual transition programme for you all to enjoy.
New Head Teacher Welcome
We are very excited to bring you a message from your new Head Teacher, Mr Bull, who will be joining us during the first term. Mr Bull is going to be new to the school and we know he can’t wait to meet you all!
You will find transition resources that mirror our usual Year 7 Transition Day activities below; work your way through the taster lessons, and look at the PSHE resources focusing on transition. We have carefully created all of these resources to help ensure you feel comfortable and ready when you join our school in September. We can’t wait to meet you all in person and we hope you enjoy your virtual Year 7 Transition!
The following taster lessons are provided in different formats; documents are available in PowerPoint or Word format which can be edited electronically or, for those students who do not have access to the Microsoft Office suite, documents are also available in PDF format which can be printed and written on by hand. Once completed, if there is any work you are particularly proud of, please bring it with you to show your Subject Teacher in September.

If you have any queries regarding transition, please contact Y7transition@gildredgehouse.org.uk
We know that not being able to visit the school, meet other students and meet your teachers in person will make you more nervous than usual so if you do have any questions, please email your Tutor who will help put your mind at ease and help you with answers to any queries you may have.
